An emergency level of need

Last year, DMARC provided food for a record 65,219 individuals in Greater Des Moines through its Food Pantry Network, a program that includes 14 food pantries, a food delivery service, and multiple Mobile Food Pantry locations. To put this in perspective, the Network provides over 4.5 million meals to those in need in the greater Des Moines community every 12 months. The DMARC Food Pantry Network continues to see an emergency level of need in 2024 as food insecurity has reached an all-time high in our community.

Get Involved

Behind the scenes of an event like Spring Greens are a dedicated team of hard-working volunteers. Help provide support with event logistics, decorations, silent and live auction, and promotions in the time leading up to the big day.

All proceeds will benefit the Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC), an interfaith organization committed to fighting food insecurity while it has reached an all-time high in our community.
